I would say not fantastically - it is part of the DOM, but it is 1. XML - so namespaces? 2. SVG has it's own DOM - it builds on an extends the HTML DOM but React only understands the HTML DOM.

But I could also say these were minor quibbles.

That's just not true, react does understand and is able to create svg elements in the svg namespace.

Most of that is a problem in browsers already as well. While SVG works without problems in other XML languages due to namespaces, browsers run it through an HTML parser and certain things are simply required by that parser for no good reason, e.g. that the XLink namespace prefix must be xlink and otherwise it won't work.
